Cautions on Use

Camera

  • This product was manufactured for use in the country in which it was purchased. The warranty is only valid in the country in which the camera was purchased.
  • Should the product fail or malfunction while you are abroad, the manufacturer assumes no responsibility for servicing the product locally or bearing the expenditure incurred therefore.
  • Be sure not to drop or apply any sudden force to the camera.
  • While you are carrying the camera, be careful not to hit it against other objects. Take special care not to hit the lens.
  • In an environment where the temperature changes suddenly, condensation may occur in the camera, resulting in troubles such as fogging of the glass surface or malfunctions of the camera. If this occurs, place the camera in a bag to slow the temperature change as much as possible. Take it out of the bag after the temperature difference from the atmosphere has decreased to a fairly small amount. If condensation occurs, wait until the moisture has dried before using the camera.
  • Do not get the camera wet. Do not operate the camera with wet hands. This can result in malfunction or an electrical shock.
  • When taking photos of an important event (such as a wedding or overseas trip), take a test photo beforehand to check that the camera is working properly.

Battery

  • The battery is a lithium ion battery.
  • Be sure to charge the battery before use, as it is not fully charged at the time of dispatch.
  • Due to the characteristics of the battery, use in cold areas will shorten the usage time even if the battery is sufficiently charged.
  • If storing for a long time, charge the battery for around 30 minutes once a year.
  • Store in a cool place. A dry place with an ambient temperature of 15°C - 25°C is recommended. Avoid extremely hot or cold places.
  • Do not recharge immediately after charging is done.
  • Charge in an area with an ambient temperature of 10°C - 40°C. Charging in a hot area may cause the battery to deteriorate. Charging in a cold area may prevent sufficient charging.
